Good news. Medium just sent me this:
We apologize for the delay, and for the confusion.
We recently identified a bug in the scheduling feature, where your designated distribution setting was not being respected when publication editors went to publish your draft using the schedule feature. This has now been fixed moving forward.
Our next step is to determine the impact of lost revenue, and resend all those stories for curation review. Please bear with us, and we will follow up with you directly.
While we do, we urge you to review all your stories at https://medium.com/me/stories/public. Stories that are behind our curated in our paywalled meter and/or eligible for monetization are notated with a star.
